What are migraines and headaches?

Migraines and severe headaches are complex neurological events that can significantly impact your quality of life. The symptoms can vary widely, but they’re often much more than just a pain in the head. Migraines can lead to visual disturbances known as auras, as well as dizziness, and extreme sensitivity to sensory stimuli. Headaches can also bring about irritability, concentration difficulties, and muscle stiffness. Understanding the symptoms and their underlying cause is the first step in managing them effectively. 

At HelloGP, our approach begins with a thorough telehealth assessment to understand the nature and triggers of your migraines or headaches. From there, we explore a range of treatment options tailored to your needs, which may include medication, lifestyle adjustments like stress management techniques, dietary changes, and even advice on sleep hygiene. If prescription medication forms part of your treatment plan, we deliver electronic prescriptions to you instantly – helping you access support and treatment from wherever you are most comfortable.
